This year's class of draft-eligible safeties is both full of talent and very deep. The Ravens might fall in love with the top prospect, Kenny Vaccaro, but barring something strange happening, they likely have no chance to land him in the first round.
That doesn't mean, however, that they can't find starter-worthy talent in later rounds.
Take Georgia's Bacarri Rambo. WalterFootball.com has Rambo as their sixth-ranked safety heading into the Scouting Combine, but his name is getting hotter, and he might just prove to be a standout when defensive backs take the field for drills on Tuesday.
The issue with Rambo is off-the-field problems involving drugs, which resulted in a four-game suspension at the start of the 2012 season. How he handles discussing the suspension in interviews will do a lot to help or harm his draft stock—potentially as much as his performances in drills.
Safety is a priority position for the Ravens this year. Ed Reed may leave as a free agent, and Sean Considine and James Ihedigbo are also unrestricted free agents, meaning that the Ravens could soon be lacking depth at safety.
It's a position they are likely to address in the draft, and what happens with their free agents will determine in which round they do so.
Rambo could be a third-round option for Baltimore. He knows how to get to the football—he had three interceptions and three forced fumbles in 2012 in just nine games—and could turn into the ball-hawking playmaker that Reed has been for so many years.
It's all about whether or not his personal problems bleed into his NFL career and how much of a risk the Ravens, or any interested team, are willing to take.
